Re: Blizzaks - Traverse City

I just put a set of these on my car (mit studs) and I haven't much
experience with them in the white stuff yet - although limited driving
indicated they are good.  The noise level is surprisingly low!  The handling
is OK, but not confidence inspiring.  Crosswind stability is seriously down
compared to my 225/50X16" VRs.  Cornering is reasonable up to speeds
significantly exceeding the posted limits, but doesn't feel wonderful.  BTW,
I tried a set of Blizzaks once, drove a few miles, considered them horribly
dangerous and made the shop take them off.  Between the bad handling and the
fact that the magic ice tread goes away after one season, I said NO WAY to
